Another busy week for the Celiac Family. And, as we head into October this week, I don’t see it slowing down anytime soon. I’m trying to keep the meals simple, to accommodate the afterschool schedules.
Cheryl at GF Goodness is hosting the Gluten-Free Menu Swap this week. Thanks to Cheryl for continuing to organize the GF Menu Swap for us. This week she is featuring vegetarian meals. Be sure to check them out. Her Southwestern Quinoa and Black Bean Salad looks great.
Monday – Cilantro-Lime Shrimp
I’m using my mom’s recipe for shrimp this week. I love the cilantro and lime flavor, and best of all it’s a quick and easy recipe. I’ll serve it over basmati rice.
Tuesday – Flank Steak
Didn’t get to have flank steak last week, so I’ll try it again this week. Serving with red potato and green bean salad.
Wednesday – Sausage and Baked Beans
I found some sausages at Whole Foods last week that looked enticing: Niman Ranch Chipotle Cheddar and Chorizo Sausage. When I saw “Gluten Free” on the package, I had to buy them. Probably too hot for the kids, so they’ll get hot dogs instead. Serving them with leftover rice and baked beans. I’ll have the kids help me make a berry fruit salad, too.
Thursday – Grilled Chicken
Chicken simply seasoned with salt and pepper and grilled. Serving with cornbread and green beans.
Friday – Out
At the end of a busy week of activities, I’ll take a break from cooking. I’ll probably let the kids get burgers (without buns, of course) from McDonald’s after soccer practice.
Saturday – Stuffed Baked Potatoes
Baked potatoes filled with leftover chicken and broccoli and topped with a cheesy sauce. The kids don’t like baked potatoes, but they’ll eat the chicken and broccoli. And, maybe we’ll have some leftover fruit salad.
Sunday – Breakfast for Dinner
Not sure what it’s going to be yet, but I’m already looking forward to it.
